the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician
pledge. [video clip] >> what i would say to grover norquist is the sequester destroys the u.s. military. according to our secretaire defense, it would be shooting ourselves in the hip. a smaller army since 1940 and the smallest airports in the history of the country. sequestration must be replaced. i'm willing to generate revenue. it's fair to ask my party to put revenue on the table. i will not raise tax rates to do it. i will cap deductions. if you can deduct and around $30,000 or $40,000, you can raise $1 trillion in revenue. the people who would lose deductions would be upper-income americans. i want entitlement reforms to do this. democrats always promised to cut spending, but we never cut spending. i'm looking for more revenue for entitlement reform before the end of the year. >> let me press you one more time on grover norquist. he said you are not inclined to go through on this promise to raise revenues because you like being a senator. your response? >> i love being a senator and i want to be a senator who matters for the state of south carolina and the country. when you are $1

"it comes down to turnout." host: what do you think about the u.s. electoral system as we head into the final day? voters go to the polls tomorrow. in "u.s. a today," the two candidates made their pitch for why you should vote for them. barack obama, mitt romney, writing in to "usa today," sharing their opinions. president obama says -- "do not give up, we have had a rise in jobs and a rebound in growth." governor romney says -- "we need a new beginning." looking at the headline of "the wall street journal," it gives us an idea of where the candidates were over the weekend. you can see
think are some concrete ways in which u.s. national security can be improved through help intervention beyond cross border infectious disease control. >> anybody care to take that one? >> i will be glad to respond. there has been a lot of debate. you and i have had a lot of debate in this area. we thank csi as for bringing us together. we never would have met otherwise. there's a wide diversity of opinion on this topic. it seems to me the global health security in terms of a rapidly expanding disease is something everyone would agree is something we should prevent. admiral fargo whose video early on was once asked why do all the cooperation stuff in the pacific? there are no wars going on. he said your point? he felt strongly by engaging other countries, talking about military, engage in other countries in peaceful areas we could have discussions would lead to a more stable likelihood of a more stable environment and i would put that forward as a way of engaging other countries and hopefully by closing the gap which i believe has happened over the last several years between the militar
and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an issue that ultimately effects each and every one of us. >> thats why current is stepping up. >> ... by feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >> for an entire week we'll explore hunger, malnutrition >> ... and offer solutions. >> so join us here at current tv where together, we'll feed the needy. >> brought to you by the all new doge dart. >> doge: new rules. now imagine the worst case scenario. worse than that.

a chance to turn the u.s. around and i believe he is genuine. thank you. host: the next caller from new york on the democratic line. caller: thanks for taking my call. that last call was interesting to me because it seems romney's solution is a big huge tax cut for the wealthy in this country. president obama came in with the bush recession and he's put the stimulus in place and he has put in many other policies that have helped this country stabilize and created 5 million jobs. and what will mitt romney do? cut taxes. that's not a solution. mitt romney has no credibility on domestic policy or international policy. if you're solution for everything that ails us is tax cuts, that's not going to work. look at the bush tax cuts from 04. in the debate, he agreed with president obama on 95% of everything and when he tried to get president obama on libya, he failed. he has no credibility. he will say anything to win and i think that's why president obama will prevail on november 7 because he deserves reelection. he's a great president. host: we can see mitt romney talking to supporters there
's first openly gay u.s. senator, defeating tommy thompson. >> and the key word there, "openly." and in maine, independent angus king easily won the senate seat. i am not bottled up on that one. >> the most important adverb of the morning. >> the most notable pickup for republicans was in nebraska where deb fischer flipped ben nelson's seat defeating bob kerrey. >> look at these numbers, mike, really quickly before we go to break. that race was getting close, we had heard, near the end. kerrey was catching up. but i'll tell you what, in all of these races, barack obama's coattails were long. in nebraska, you look at those numbers, you look at massachusetts, it wasn't even close in the end. mitt romney had no coattails. in fact, he had a really detrimental impact on a lot of these candidates. >> mitt romney lost in every state he's ever liver lived. >> that's a bad sign. >> do you think his dog's going to even look at him today? >> you know the guy who's in charge of the research committee for republican senate candidates? >> well, no, i don't, thank god. i mean, seriously. the
you know he wasn't the first? in fact, four u.s. presidents have been elected to office without winning the popular votes all in tight races like the one decide this had week, could it all happen again? presidential historian joins us with perspective, good morning to you, nick. >> good morning, gretchen. >> this just happened 12 years ago and many people have been speculating that president obama might win electorally, but mitt romney might win the popular vote. how do you see it? >> well, it's sort of becoming a trend as you mentioned, it happened 12 years ago and three other times in history and it could very well happen again. we see that mitt romney in a lot of the polls is leading, and we've seen other polls, obama is leading and depends where the electoral college, those eight swing states that people are talking about, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, others, depends what happens in those states. amazingly enough this election has turned into an election for about eight states. >> gretchen: and some people are upset about that and gins up the discussion, whether or not the
people think he's waiting to run for the u.s. senate seat in 2014. half of those polled had a positive but said they don't know about him to form an opinion. a little break iing news out of virginia. republican lieutenant governor bill bolling is going to make it official that he will drop out of the race this morning clearing a path fo the likely nominee for governor. governor mcdonnell said he was still backing bolling. are you supporting bill bolling? >> i told him four years ago i would support him. >> you're sticking with us? >> he's a good man. >> are you worried about a divisive primary? >> primaries and conventions are about choices. once we finish those, we get back together and try to win. >> likely democratic nominee appears to be terry mcauliffe. no other major democrats have announced they will get in. mark warner said no. the joke, running joke, among operatives about mcauliffe's chances were always, well, they have no chance of becoming governor unless they get to face fill in the blank of the other guy. mcauliffe versus kucinelli. we'll see if that turns out to be the r
old, i just became a u.s. citizen this year and must say i was so proud to have the privilege to vote. i started crying as i was walking away from the polls. just whoever whelmed with emotions. #voteordie. and speaking of the youth vote, despite the fact that unemployment for those between 18 and 29 was up 12% in the month of october, by 61% of young voters still favor president obama. there was some concern about an enthusiasm gap because in 2008, 78% of young people said they were very enthusiastic about the president but only 48% said so this time around. so it will be very interesting to see if they actually turned out. >> actually go and vote. >> right. >> that is the big question. they turned out at about the same rate as those four years ago. josh elliott. you have people gathering around. >> the anticipation is starting to build, people milling about and seeing on the giant screen surrounding us here in times square turning it into a virtual amphitheater. the votes coming in. as we project states, the excitement starting to build and i want to bring in first-time voters. we ar
. >> the u.s. senate. >> it could affect the senate race in connecticut. really, these are states where president obama should be able to win with a large margin. one state where the media market bleeds into is pennsylvania. so much in new jersey was hit by the hurricane. the president's visit there with chris yisty. a lot of people saw that on tv were in pennsylvania and key media markets there. if that race is competitive, that may help. >> how much do you think it affects the total popular vote, the number of popular vote? how much might that mean for president obama? >> i see 300,000 people may not show up for the polls. >> you've been spending all this time waiting for gasoline. you don't know where your polling place is. >> which you've been doing. you think about all that time waiting in line for the basic necessities of life, it makes you a little less enthusiastic about going out and trying to figure out where you're going to vote. people are just trying to get warm right now. >> you also see why it's important for a governor to have the authority to be able to make changes. go
of weeks ago, just showed up at my house and said they had somebody in a very sensitive position in the u.s. government who was willing to meet with me, give me information about benghazi. appointments were broken, the guy didn't show up. he finally showed up -- and they didn't have anything where he had any firsthand knowledge. he said you ought to talk to this person and that person and so forth-- >>> i bet you would look -- >> people are digging into it. >> sean: let me ask you this: we don't know where the president was on the night of 9/11, when this happened. we don't know what he knew. he denied for two weeks what we know our state department watched in realtime, according to this woman -- [overlapping dialogue] >> inconsistencies and unanswered questions. the washington post editorialized on this and said we really ought to get some answers-- >>> but we didn't. >> we didn't. you know, you can't write if you don't have anything. but when i work on one of these projects or books, it takes months and years-- >>> i know it does. >> to develop the sources and get the documentation. my th
. you know, "u.s. news & world report" had a cover talking about the end of the democratic party. you remember 1980. >> yeah, yeah. >> people were saying the same thing about the end of the democratic party. two years later in 1982, democrats had a massive landslide victory. the same thing happened in 1996. bill clinton got elected. these things come and go. parties adjust. and this republican party will adjust. >> it needs to adjust. >> remember, two years ago -- and i hate to say this -- i've been saying this for four years -- two years ago republicans picked up historic gains in off-year elections. and i said yeah, we did that in 1994. then we lost in 1996. and the same thing has happened. the question is, willie, do they adjust? alec baldwin had a hilarious quote. did you see this quote? >> yeah. which one? >> yeah. what is the exact quote? >> something you like you know your party's in trouble -- >> when you ask -- >> how did the rape guy do, and you have to say "which one?" >> which one? i can't hammer this home enough. i've done it for four years. there is a difference between

in this world than the u.s. military, to understand and think through all the secondary and tertiary, primary elements of a plan and how to execute it. so, leveraging that skill set and engaging with the appropriate authorities on how to respond to a health emergency, and how you would address these issues well before the incident occurs is probably the best solution. now, those teams probably exist to do that. but whether or not, it really depends on their maturity of that country and its ability to leverage very scarce resources. just like in the u.s., our health care professionals barely have enough time to address the day-to-day health care needs of the population, let alone planning for emergency. this is the challenge, but i think this is where the military and the u.s., in collaboration with its other federal partners, can be extraordinarily successful. >> in the back. i think we're probably just about running out of time, so the mic is behind you. core question. >> i'd like to refer back -- university of wisconsin republic referred back to ambassador hume's reference to the shipping i
reasons that we're becoming more competitive around the globe, the u.s. economy is growing in areas and u.s. manufacturing is because of energy expiration and production here in the united states. so i think the conditions are ripe just for a different kind of participation, regardless if it's romney or obama from the corporate community. >> we've been looking for the past couple of weeks at polls and there have been certain bets being placed on this election -- >> mustaches -- >> yes. >> grow a mustache -- >> please don't. i beg you. >> that look you had yesterday -- >> let us hope. let us hope. >> let's hope not. >> romney wins pennsylvania so axelrod has to come on the air and shave his mustache. >> oh, that would be something. all right. here's from the washington post, empty measurements. on the eve of the election, nate silver placed president obama's chances of returning to office at 86.3%, not 86.1%, not 87.8%, at 86.3%. silver's prediction is not an innovation, it's trend taken to its absurd extreme. his work is better summarized as an 83.6% confident that the state polls are corre

to tell you -- committed to tell about the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. captures the obama hatred that they have carried throughout the first term. it is a story they seem desperate to forecast. as you say in the past, it is being used for conservatives to spin thai ugliest fantasies. he's a heartless trader who chose to let americans die at the hands of islamic terrorists. >> it is ugly stuff. obviously fox news is pounding this. they think it hurts obama for the election. before unemployment went under 8% -- they switched to benghazi. you take the benghazi hysteria and you tie it into campaign hysteria and you tie it into the right wing media which is depicted obama as a socialist as a racist, as a marxist and they see -- they think he might win and it just drives this -- you know, benghazi is this right wing storm that's gaining -- you know strength over the oarves of an election. -- the oceans of an election. it is creating this cyclone effect. they call him a marxist. what can
